First went here for happy hour. Our food choices were OK but not great and could have been hotter. For a restaurant with the name of Vinotecca I would have expected a more inspired wine list - but there are very few wines by the...More

Pee, we are sorry to hear you were less than satisfied with your recent visit. We do offer 24 different wines by the glass, however, if you feel inclined to share your opinion on what you would've liked to seen on the menu, we would...More

This restaurant used to be the bird and the bread. It has a new name and new theme. The food is good but I prefer the atmosphere of the old restaurant. Price wise, they are about the same but I thought the ambience of old...More

Thank you for leaving us a review! We are disappointed that our transition did not excite you more. Our goal was to make the atmosphere more intimate particularly with the style of live music we offer on weekends. If you have any suggestions we are...More

Great food but we couldn’t tell how to get in. The outdoor bar seemed more like a front door than the front door did, and when we got inside the dining area seemed quite unorganized and hard to get around in. That said, the spare...More

We had a 745 reservation and we were seated at 830. We weren’t served our dinner until 10:00. Our appetizers were brought out about 30 minutes apart. Our charcuterie plate had the wrong cheese on it. The waiter wasn’t attentive at all. Servers brought our...More

I liked the wine recommendations but the food was a bit overpriced. The food was OK, but could've been better. The server was overly aggressive and increasingly unprofessional as the night went on. The restaurant was beautiful and atmosphere welcoming. Would most likely go back...More

the new location of Vinotecca has really lost the intimate "wine bar" vibe. The iPads with the wine list seem more like Fleming's than the cozy wine bar of old. They did little to refresh the interior so it still seems like The Bird and...More

With wine as the centerpiece, Vinotecca is open in its new location in downtown Birmingham! Offering wine education and fun in a non-intimidating way for the novice while also presenting a higher-level experience for the aficionado, the original Vinotecca concept, which the Jonna Family of Restaurants brought to Royal Oak in 2005, is modernized as it celebrates the artistry of wine and food while adding music in a swanky intimate environment.
